STELIOS KAZANTZIDIS – 100 GREAT SONGS

Stelios Kazantzidis

The hero of Hellenic “Working Class” music

 

 

 

Kazantzidis was born in 1931 in Nea Ionia-Athens and died at the age of 70s in Athens. Thanks to his active presence in the genuine folk song market from the age of 18 years, he was able to express in the most authentic way the pains, sufferings and joys of the Greek people in the difficult times after the Nazi occupation and the civil war.

 His mother was a refugee from Asia Minor. As a child, he heard her singing folk songs that refugees brought to their new homeland; from his grandmother -as he used to admit- Kazantzidis inherited his breathing and singing techniques. His father was a bricklayer, organized in ELAS (the Greek liberation army) during the years of German occupation (1941 – 1944). He was brutally murdered during the civil war, which followed later. Since that, the young son Stelios had to work hard, to struggle, in order to support his family. The military service was traumatic for him. But, afterwards, while working in a factory in New Ionia, he got as a gift a guitar from his boss, who had heard his great voice. Whenever he was not working, Stelios was trying to learn songs on the guitar. Soon he started having music lessons by the blind composer Stelios Chrysinis.

 One day a passer outside his home heard him and suggested Stelios to sing in his tavern. This is how his great career started. In 1950 he appeared professionally for first time in Kifissia. Two years later he made his first recording with the song “Gia banio paw” (I go swimming), written by Apostolos Kaldaras; this record did not “sold out”. But the composer Giannis Papaioannou had already realized Stelios’ value. His song “I valítsa” (The suitcase), recorded by Kazantzidis and Kaiti Grey, became very soon a great hit; and so Stelios’ career took off. Many more hits and appearances followed in many taverns and nightclubs, where popular music was played. At the same time he became engaged to Kaiti Grey and started to cooperate with her. The engagement and cooperation were ended in 1957.

The most fruitful eight years in the artistic life of Stelios Kazantzidis begun then. His acquaintance with Marinella progressed to a brilliant cooperation. They interpreted together songs of the most leading Greek composers (Tsitsanis, Papaioannou, Chiotis, Kaldaras, Theodorakis, Hadjidakis, Leondís, Xarchakos, Loizos, Markopoulos etc.) and verse writers (Papagiannopoulou, Virvos etc.). In 1966 they decided to marry together. Their marriage did not last long, but they remained friends everafter. Some years later Kazantzidis met and married Vasso, for whom he used to say that she was his “treasure of life”.

It seems that, at least in the 60s, Kazantzidis experienced problems with several “godfathers of night” and mafia fathers, which were directing the most nightclubs, in which he was working. His friends recounted even threats for his life. Therefore, in 1965, while he was at the height of his career, he decided to leave the nightclubs, and communicate with people who adored him, only through his albums. Even this communication was interrupted some years later, because of several disagreements with his record company “Minos” (1975 – 1987, after the album “Iparho” (I exist). His last song “Érchontai chrónia dýskola” [Difficult years are coming]” was performed just before he died (on September 14, 2001).

During his career Stelios Kazantzidis interpreted songs of great Greek composers (Vassilis Tsitsanis, Giannis Papaioannou, Giorgos Mitsakis, Manolis Chiotis, Apostolos Kaldaras, Thódoros Derveniotis, Takis Soukas, Giorgos Zambetas, Akis Panou, Babis Bakalis, Thanasis Polikandriótis, Mikis Theodorakis, Manos Hatzidakis, Stavros Xarhakos, Manos Loïzos, Christos Leondís, Christos Nikolopoulos etc) and  verse writers (Kostas Virvos, Eftichia Papagianopoulos, Tassos Leivaditis, Dimitris Christodoulou, Lefteris Papadopoulos, Pythagoras, Sotia Tsotou, Christos Kolokotronis, Evággelos Atraidis etc).

As a folk singer, Stelios Kazantzidis was adored by the public; he entered the hearts and homes of ordinary people gaining a unique feeling of intimacy to those who felt that he had singing for their sufferings and hopes.
